Rayline began producing toy guns in the 1950's, and this model was one of their earliest efforts. (Rayline would become well-known
a decade later for their Tracer guns.) The Westchester (a play on Winchester) Shooting Carbine was a toy rifle for smaller children
that fired soft 'bullets'.
Unlike many other toy rifles of the time, the Westchester was designed to mimic a hunter's gun as opposed to a cowboy or military
rifle, the sort which were very popular with boys of the time.
Rifle measures appx. 15". The toy comes with twelve bullets and two small targets shaped like game animals.
When found in excellent condition in the original package (as shown), this toy usually brings around $150.
